Karen here. I am having such a fun time with the Monster Party dies and decided to recreate the Whale as a monster as an embellishment to my splash attack day scrapbook/planner page. My boyfriend’s dog loves to bite at the splashes and has a really sweet underbite, so I thought this whale monster fit perfectly.
First thing I did was create the waves and this sweet monster. For all of it, I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The monster is a combination of the Whale (body and fins) and the Monster 1 (face). I used Black Soot distress ink to color him up and cut the teeth in “half” and turned them upside down to create the underbite. The cut the eyes and teeth with the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to adhere. The waves are cut from the Ocean Edges dies after coloring up the paper by smooshing it into distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon. The waves crashed over the whole on the planner page, so I just repunched it after attaching them in layers.
I added my splash monster and wave embellishments to a Planner Essentials 2 page cut from dark blue cardstock. The letters on this page are from Planner Essentials 37. I used scrap pieces I had from the Mystical Winter paper to add a bit of pattern to the page. The page tab is from the Planner Essential 4 set and are stamped with a stamp from the Moods set.
More fun on the back of the page. For the journaling here, I printed the journal and cut with a die from the Planner Label set. And, of course, I had to add some fun reinforcements to finish up my pages.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
